Thank you for your interest in the mini-med school program at Harvard Medical School!

Each spring, Harvard Medical School offers a series of four science and health educational seminars free of charge and open to the general public in the heart of Boston’s Longwood Medical Area.

Seminar topics are selected from a list of suggestions from prior seminar attendees. Meant to appeal to a wide audience, past seminars have presented talks on human genetics, nutrition, sleep and health care access. Faculty from Harvard Medical School and its affiliate hospitals volunteer their time to present these lectures to the community.

At the end of the seminar series, participants who attend three out of the four seminars on the Boston campus are eligible to receive a certificate of completion. Public school teachers who attend all four seminars and complete an assessment form for each session can earn 10 PDPs (professional development points).

This is a great opportunity to learn and hear from Harvard Medical School faculty on a broad range of topics. Attendees, both in Boston and online, will also have a chance to pose questions to the experts.

Watch 2018 seminars online and stay tuned for the 2019 seminars.
